Sporting Lisbon vs Maritimo Lineups, Preview, and Team News

Sporting Lisbon

They lost to Juventus in the quarterfinals of the Europa League and still have three games remaining to conclude the season. Sporting's only goal left is to gain that coveted Champions League position, but it will be tough because Braga is up by four points and Sporting still has to play Benfica. Jerry St. Juste and Daniel Braganca are injured while Jovane Cabral is doubtful to play.

Expected lineup: Adan, Diomande, Coates, Inacio, Bellerin, Ugarte, Morita, Santos, Edwards, Trincao, Goncalves.

Maritimo

Maritimo's away form has been torrid this season and is the main reason why they are in trouble. The team can still be directly relegated because the last two teams in the standings, Pacos Ferreira and Santa Clara are not that far behind. The 16th spot that is currently occupied by Maritimo would take them to the relegation playoffs while Estoril, the first team outside the relegation zone is running away with a five-point advantage. There are no reported injuries in the Maritimo squad.

Expected lineup: Marcelo Carne, Vitor Costa, Rene, Zainadine, Paulinho, Val, Joao Afonso, Correia, Xadas, Catamo, Cunha Vidigal.

Player to Watch: Pedro Goncalves

The most prized asset for Sporting is the 24-year-old Pedro Goncalves whose 15 goals and ten assists this season are both team highs. He has appeared in 30 league matches and has been the key for the Lisbon outfit this season.
